Scarecrows

Another challenge your crops will face is the threat of being damaged by crows, every day there is a random chance your crops will be attacked by these bird monsters, ruining your crop.

Scarecrow

The only way you can protect your crop from this avian pest is the use of a scare crow, or in this case, a scare-melon-lord which will ward off all crows from attacking your crops in that chunk.
The scarecrow can be crafted with three sticks, one melon block and a piece of wheat using a workbench.
